This art­icle on 电源供应器 effi­ciency for a mod­ern sandy bridge gam­ing PC fol­lows on from 3 pre­vi­ous art­icles, 关于 电源供应器 effi­ciency for a medi­um power serv­er, 一 medi­um use very high power gam­ing PClow power serv­er or HTPC.



In this art­icle I’m going to assume the sys­tem is oper­ated from 4pm — 10pm week­days and 10am — 11pm week­ends at full power. I’m also going to assume the sys­tem is on and idle for the rest of the time.

sys­tem in ques­tion pulls ~45w idle and ~247w under full load. I’m assum­ing an AMD Radeon HD 6870 (18w idle, 163w full) instead of the EN9400GT (11w idle, 23w full), the power num­bers are adjus­ted accord­ingly. All of these estim­ates are delib­er­ately on the high side. I expect a typ­ic­al PC will spend more time off, more time idle, and wont be loaded as intensely as the example.

The fig­ure for the gen­er­ic 电源供应器 is based on the min­im­um require­ment and is there­fore a worst case. Even with a very poor effi­ciency 电源供应器 the AC draw from the wall won’t increase as the DC draw decreases. I have cal­cu­lated a best-case yearly sav­ing, based on a kWh charge of 10p.

The con­clu­sion is no longer clear. The value of an upgrade has improved over the pre­vi­ous scen­ario with a gam­ing PC. How­ever, even with a lot of heavy use, and com­par­ing the most effi­cient 电源供应器’s with the worst a budget ATX 电源供应器 can per­form, a new 电源供应器 will still take around 4 years to pay for itself. A real world upgrade is unlikely to net this much saving.

If you are con­sid­er­ing repla­cing an exist­ing 电源供应器 my advice would be not to both­er, unless you have addi­tion­al reas­ons. If you are buy­ing new then it is worth pay­ing more for a bet­ter 电源供应器, with­in reas­on. Of course if you want the effi­ciency for oth­er reas­ons (低噪声, low heat) then those factors may make the value dif­fer­ence irrelevant.

Cor­rec­ted slight error for Modu87+ and added the HuntKey Jump­er R90. This 电源供应器 changes the con­clu­sion for any­one with a low effi­ciency 电源供应器It pro­duces sav­ings of over £30, which is approx­im­ately the price of the 电源供应器A pay­back peri­od of 1 年, with an expect­a­tion that elec­tri­city prices will con­tin­ue to rise is well worth the investment.
